Understanding bitcoin’s party

I only use coingate and blockchain.info and to my understanding, coingate is a party that handles transactions (make order, send and receive bitcoin) while blockchain.info is a wallet to store bitcoin. I have a few questions below:

  1. Why can’t coingate be a wallet itself?

  2. In https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet, why blockchain.info is not listed? Was it not updated?

Technical details of premining

I’m just kind of an enthusiastic beginner in this topic. I have created an altcoin using one of the many public available sources (cryptonote in this case). I want now to create a new coin with premine. After I read a lots of comments I still don’t get the exact point which would I need to modify in the code to have my coins premined.

What I have in my mind (correct me if I’m wrong): There is a two-step compilation. First is without genesis block, this is actually for generating the genesis block. Second is the final with genesis block included in the config.

So my idea is to include the premined coins’ transaction in the genesis block in first run. Is this a good way doing it?

If yes, I assume Currency.cpp needs to be modified. Here is I’m a bit stuck, how can I manually ‘mine’ 10% of my total coins? Should I modify baseReward to totalcoins * 10% in the first compilation?
